On September 10, Jordan Varat and Stefany Espinoza hosted a table at the Houston Science Festival , an event co-sponsored by Bridges to Science that has the tag line “Casa to College”, because it is a celebration of Hispanic culture and learning at home designed for home educated 5th-12th grade students and their parents.

We are really pleased to contribute to this event. We brought moveable chompers etched on both sides with a low power laser beam, Miura Map fold paper, and spirals.  There are notes on all three and links to files in our blog entry from 2019.   Here’s a link to an instagram post that show mathematical origami uses for space exploration.
